Wolves’ unbeaten run in the Premier League came to an end yesterday against Crystal Palace.
After the brilliant win over Everton, Bruno Lage’s side were very disappointing at Selhurst Park.
Wolves had the chance to move up to fifth in the table.
But as the game progressed, it became clear that that just wasn’t going to happen.
Unfortunately, Wolves slipped back into defensive mode and invited pressure from Palace.
Wilfried Zaha and the impressive Conor Gallagher got the goals for the hosts. There was to be no Aston Villa-style comeback this time around.
Wolves were beaten by the better side, and Lage has some thinking to do over the international break.
It was an afternoon to forget for Wolves fans, but some did feel one player in old gold was worthy of some praise.
Max Kilman, fresh from signing a new deal at the club on Friday, was again fairly solid at the back despite the poor result.
Wolves fans praise Kilman
It was a frustrating afternoon for Wolves.
But Kilman’s display was indeed a small positive to take.
He missed out on the latest England squad, and is already showing Gareth Southgate that he may have made a mistake.
Here’s what some supporters had to say about the 24-year-old:
What happened to the team vs Everton..
Lack of desire, lack of energy, lack of ideas, lack of physicality. We only showed any spite in the last 5.
Kilman the pick of the bunch
On a positive note I had a new TV delivered today #wwfc

So other than Kilman maintaining his fine form, what do we do at the back?
Is it time to bring Boly back in? Would Kilman, Boly and Coady/Saiss be a viable move or do we have to wait for January for a proper shakeup? #wwfc 🧡🐺🧡

Shocking approaches to recent away games . Awful today . Only positive for me was Kilman. The guy is going to be a cracking CB . Coming on leaps and bounds #wwfc

Possibly Kilman comes out with some credit, the rest were awful.
Well beaten unfortunately #wwfc

Max ‘Away By’ Kilman having another immense game. At what point do we close the vote for player of the season? #wwfc
